Number and speed of mitochondria ?

Hello everybody,

I try to find out two things which don't seem to be in standard
textbooks and where I didn't find any good reference for.

1)    What is the number of mitochondria in different mammalian cell
types ?
2)    Mitochondria can move along the cytoskeleton. Is anything known
about the speed ?

Any hints are welcomed
